Outrage

When everything is a priority, nothing is a priority. That’s the apothegm.

When everything causes outrage, then nothing is really outrageous.

I’m outraged when a hospital or insurance company withholds gravely needed care over money. I’m not outraged when a driver fails to use a directional signal. I’m outraged by animal abuse. I’m not outraged over the price of a ticket (because I don’t have to buy it, it’s voluntary).

If you’re outraged by every small grievance, by every preference you have that goes unmet or unfulfilled, the only thing that will be certain to occur is that your stress will continually increase until it ruins your health. Now that would be outrageous, right?
